Economic calendar: Fed speakers, Canadian retail sales

9:32 AM June 21, 2022

  • European markets set to open slightly higher

  • Canadian retail sales for April due at 1:30 pm BST

  • Speeches from Fed Barkin and Fed Mester

Futures markets are pointing to a slightly higher opening of the European cash session today. Asian session has been upbeat and it is setting the tone for a higher opening on the Old Continent.Traders should keep in mind that US traders return from a long weekend today therefore liquidity conditions should improve in the afternoon.

Taking a look at the economic calendar for the day ahead, we do not see any major top-tier releases scheduled for today. Traders will be offered industrial production and jobs reports from Poland but it is unlikely to have any impact outside PLN market. CAD may move a bit during the Canadian retail sales release in the early afternoon but any volatility spike is likely to be short-lived and unlikely to be a trigger for a major move. Fed speakers - Barkin and Mester - may be the biggest source of volatility amid empty calendar.
